Welcome to Irish Heritage
Irish Heritage is a voluntary arts organisation, established in London in 1974 to promote the appreciation and understanding of classical music (broadly defined) and music composed by Irish composers, performed by young Irish musicians in Britain to a wide audience. It is the only Irish arts organisation in Britain dedicated to helping young Irish musicians through their continuing education and the early part of their careers. See our Aims
Irish Heritage presents a programme of events in established music venues open to the public; it showcases young Irish musicians at special events and supports other organisations which share its aims in music and the arts. The Irish Heritage Music Bursary (worth £5,000) is awarded annually to an outstanding young Irish musician, working or studying in Britain in order to help in their education and training.

The Forge Music Venue, Camden, NW1 7NL. 7.30 pm.
Dan Milmo has spoken with diverse groups to gather stories and memories – including members of the Southwark Irish Pensioner’s Project and Bloomberg group ‘Paddy Chat’. He has collected stories from several generations and different demographics; ranging from workers, who laid the foundations of the London Tube Network, to Chief Executives of major London firms. Added to this are extensive interviews with artists to form the core of the lyrics.
